  • Regularly review all the flashcards to help you better understand and retain the information over time.

Note: We may include questions that have multiple correct answers. It’s useful to remember specific examples to understand these concepts better.

What are primary effects of tectonic hazards?

Primary effects are direct impacts of an earthquake or volcanic eruption, such as buildings being destroyed, people getting injured or killed, and transportation routes being damaged.

What are secondary effects of tectonic hazards?

Secondary effects arise from primary hazards and include economic slowdown, difficulties in delivering aid, fires from broken gas lines, disease outbreaks due to lack of clean water, homelessness, and increased food prices.

What are immediate responses to tectonic hazards?

Immediate responses include sending rescue teams, providing medical assistance, establishing temporary shelters, distributing emergency supplies, issuing warnings, and carrying out evacuations.

What are long-term responses to tectonic hazards?

Long-term responses include rebuilding homes and infrastructure, improving building regulations, improving drills and warning systems, repairing utilities, providing financial support to farms, and improving government planning.

Give examples of primary and secondary effects of tectonic hazards.

Primary effects: Buildings destroyed, and people injured/killed.
